ANALYSIS/OPINION:

What planet does Chief Justice Roberts come from (“Supreme Court halts citizenship question on 2020 census,” Web, June 27)?

What is the purpose of our decennial census? I thought the primary purpose of the census was to determine the number of citizens in each state so that we could decide how many representatives each of those states gets in the House of Representatives.

Why would we want to count illegal aliens and other foreign invaders (those who didn’t have permission to enter) toward a state’s number of representatives? They’re not even supposed to be allowed to vote.

We absolutely do need the question of citizenship on the census.
